My Question or Issue

Touch interaction has become unbearable in the last year. It was never good on PC, but at least it was not actively preventing me from using the app.

There seems to be a bug in your implementation that converts every touch, even scroll and two-finger scroll to click.

So whenever I try to scroll through playlists or songs it opens the context menu, thus blocking further access until the menu is dismissed.

For comparison, the web player behaves as expected.


This should be an easy fix, please expedite it.

Hi Lyubka,


This problem has been bothering me as well. I also run Windows 11 on a Surface pro. It is very annoying to say the least because with every stroke I make in a list I have to press in an empty space to deselect the menu that has just been opened to be able to continue scrolling. I hope Spotify will pick this up quickly, as this problem doesn't make the app easy to use, it is not user-friendly this way.



Same issue on my HP Spectre X360 convertible. Very annoying!!

Same issue with ASUS ZenBook Pro Duo on Windows 11.

Same issue with Surface Pro 7 on Windows 11

It's solved for me now after I've received an update today. Much better!

Indeed, seems finally fixed. 
Thank you.

I'm still having this issue. Every scroll is equivalent to a right click. Only with touch though. Using a mouse has no issues. I'm using a first Gen surface pro as a bedside streamer.
